Theresa May tells civil service to continue no-deal Brexit planning after ‘dereliction of duty’ accusations

Theresa May has written to every civil servant to tell them no-deal Brexit preparations “must continue” after a  backlash over the Government’s decision to “wind down” its worst-case scenario planning.

The Prime Minister sent the message to Whitehall workers on Monday morning to tell them the “necessary preparations” would carry on – but with a “sensibly adjusted” timetable.

Mrs May also said that it would be up to permanent secretaries – the most senior civil servant in a department – to decide what to plan for and when.

It emerged last week that the Government had shelved some of its no-deal planning “with immediate effect” after Mrs May agreed to a Brexit delay.
